How to make it

  • Firstly, peel and core the apples and roughly dice them into chunks.
  • Put the apple chunks into a pan, add three quarters of the sugar, the cinnamon stick or clove and cover.
  • Allow to stew gently for half an hour, stirring occasionally with a wooden spoon. Keep checking as they can easily burn at the beginning.
  • Check that the fruit is cooked by mashing it a bit with the wooden spoon. The apples should be soft but not puréed.
  • Put the apples into the serving dish and allow to cool.
  • Mix the white flour, remaining sugar and the butter with your fingers in a bowl until it becomes like a breadcrumb consistency.
  • Set the temperature of the oven to 150ºC (300ºF/ gas mark 2).
  • Cover the stewed apples with the crumble topping, without pressing down.
  • Bake for approximately 30 minutes or until the crumble is golden brown and crunchy.
  • Spoon a helping of crumble into a dish and serve with cream or ice cream.

    This is a great Favourite of mine and I also like it with Rhubarb which gives a sharpness to the dish. by the way, I usually use Bramlety cooking apples as Eating apples can be a bit too sweet for my taste. Although to eat Raw, Granny Smith apples are my favourites.
